    2. are there any other free antiviruses that match up to avg?

    1. Probably not, programs like that store lots of keys in the registry so a fresh install is best.

    2. I use NOD32 which is wicked, takes hardly any memory/cpu and has caught every dodgy file i've downloaded. Don't think its free but you can get the free trial.

    COMODO antivirus is nice and free, they also offer a good firewall which is also free.

    +1 for Nod32

    I hate viruses.

    what a waste of time and energy!
